Example of DK mohair? >>>
I'm looking at a gorgeous pattern from the book Knitted Accessories and I'd love to try it but most of the mohair I've seen is extremely fine. Can anyone point me toward one that is considered DK? (No, the book doesn't list the brand used in the finished one)

Mohair knits up thicker than it looks. A fairly fine-looking mohair will knit up worsted weight. Check the gauge on the ball band.
